Slivers within my heart.

I feel as if placed within my heart
there have been several slivers
and each sliver is attached to another
and the slivers are made of flesh
and that flesh has a small skin-like string
that unraveled and entangled itself
within the sliver
and every time
the owner of the slivers pull
I feel a pain in my heart
and every time more of me is asked
I feel the stress
and I feel my heart slowly ripping
until the slivers pull those pieces out
and even then I’ll still feel it all.
All the pain they have
and I must keep them safe
as I protect myself
and feed myself right
so I’m here as they grow
and slowly when it’s time
I can let go
and my death will be freeing
because I’ll have to worry no longer.

Thanks for reading.
